Mysuru Hosts Conference Of Corporation Commissioners: Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban 2.0
Mysore/Mysuru: A two-day training-cum-conference of Commissioners from various City Corporations on Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban 2.0 (SBM-U 2.0) was hosted by the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) on Mar. 31 and Apr. 1.
Along with the Corporation Commissioners, Assistant Engineers of the respective environment departments, officers from the Urban Development Department, Directorate of Municipal Administration, and the KPMG team from the Directorate of Municipal Administration also were part of the conference.
The implementation of the mission components will be done in a structured and time-bound manner, with a thorough gap analysis of required infrastructure, detailed five-year action plans and annual action plans with timelines.
As part of the training programme and the conference, the Commissioners visited the Solid Waste Management units at Vidyaranyapuram and Kumbarakoppal. Stakeholders from Jagruth Tech Pvt. Ltd. — the authorised plastic waste recycler and collector approved by the MCC — gave a demonstration to the Commissioners and the officials about the waste management process in Mysuru.
Dinesh Bopanna, one of the Directors of Jagruth Tech, told, they were asked to present a PPT on Solid Waste Management and landfill technology adopted by Jagruth Tech in Mysuru.
“We convert low-value plastic waste into construction materials like interlock pavers, kerbstone, road dividers and Eco Pro (plywood alternative). Impressed by our work, the Commissioners wanted to visit our plant at Vidyaranyapuram where they spent over one hour inspecting the processes,” he added.
During this session, Jagruth Tech provided insights regarding Material Recovery Facility, How to upcycle low-value materials, solutions for Solid Waste Management problems and Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
